    This is me kissing stingrays for good luck in Grand Cayman:

    This is about a month before Steve Irwin died. I bet this guy's business plummeted after that.

    Side note: I'm usually not that pasty white. Thats sunblock on my back. And stingrays taste like dog sh!t.

    A Cahaba Lily~ it grows wild on the banks of the Cahaba River near where I grew up. I remember my daddy taking us to float down the river to see it in full bloom in the spring........one of my favorite memories.

    vanders -- SO glad you posted that pic!! I love the Cahaba lilies. There is one river or large creek near here that I remember someone mentioning they grow by. It's one of few places you can see them around here in Alabama, with the Cahaba River being one of those few places as you mentioned. They're so beautiful.

    Lady -- Good pic of your daughter's team!! :) Congrats to Shelby, too!

    Seeing Lady's pic reminded me of these....

    My brother, who serves as one of the coaches, and semi-niece (long story) Katelyn when they were posing for team and individual pics of her team, the Fillies:

    Hymenocallis coronaria is the proper name for the plant commonly referred to as the Cahaba Lily. The plant grows in rivers across the southeast United States. Current populations exist in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

    The flowers bloom between early May and late June. The flowers usually open late in the day and begin to wither the next day. In most cases only one flower will open each day. The seeds take shelter in the crevices of rocks found in swift-moving currents.

    Many canoe trips take place around the time they bloom~ one reason I LOVE to visit my mama in the spring.

    Again, I love all the pics here! I need to learn how to find the pic files from iPhoto to put on Photobucket. It's different from my Windows PC. When I can do that, I'll post a few. iConfused at the moment! :)

    The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 1 characters.

    [​IMG] Stupid me...I tried to edit my last post, hit the " post quick reply" and that is the message I received. Duh.....I guess the message is a little short, since I didn't post a quick reply! lol...

    I wanted to add that I love the double exposure pic by vanders daughter, and I'd love to visit the place AU photographed. Beautiful! The "shoe" pic is so creative! I love that kind of art!

    So many pics here....beautiful, interesting, fun! Thanks everyone! To many names to mention!

    She is 76 years young and tends it all by herself. I guess the British side of me is where I get my gardening bug :ninja:

    Aww.... Jag93! Notice my second post on this page, (I think this page p.7?)....
    "So many pics here....beautiful, interesting, fun! Thanks everyone! To many names to mention!"

    After I looked at pages of pictures I only had time to post that comment. Notice in the first post at the top of the page I said that I loved all the pictures! They are all so good!

    That post included your pics, which are gorgeous, BTW! How long were you in England? Vacation or did you live there? :)
